The Western Cape Education Department says it is
pleased to see that the number of school burglary and vandalism has dropped
significantly once again by 34.4% from last year.
WECD spokesperson Jessica Shelver says that the
department is completing a cost analysis for schools that were victims of
burglary and vandalism.
She says the cost of repairs for just over half of
the schools has come in at just under Eight-Hundred-thousand Rand….
Jessica Shelver explains:
the start of every school year, one of our main concerns is that teachers and
learners will arrive at a school that has been badly vandalised or burgled
during the December school holiday.”
says that “For this reason, during the December 2015/ January 2016 school
holiday period, the WCED deployed additional security to schools that were
identified as high risk.”
